Schema Design

Sandeep Parikh, Solutions Architect, MongoDB

Effective uses of MongoDB often requires data organization that's different from what one finds with other databases, for reasons that range from performance to flexibility to architecture. This workshop will focus on patterns of MongoDB document design, and how they relate to application deployment architectures. Topics to cover will include migration from the relational mindset, techniques for taking advantage of asynchronous replication, shard key selection strategies, and more!

12:30pm - 1:00pm

Lunch and Afternoon Session Registration (Held in Hill Country Foyer)

1:00pm - 2:00pm

Building Spatial MongoDB Apps in The Cloud

This workshop will teach you how to take advantage of MongoDB's spatial indexing support as you build your own cloud-hosted app on OpenShift, Red Hat's Open Source platform as a service. OpenShift aims to provide Mongo developers with the ability to use a wide variety of programming languages, and offers MongoDB command line access, and integrated support for installing RockMongo in a single command. By the end of this session you will have all the information necessary for writing your own location based app.

2:00pm - 5:30pm

Operation Hands On

Asya Kamsky, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB

Do you need to grow a replica set? Migrate servers to different hosts? Repair a deployment after hardware failures? If so, then this workshop is for you. Attendees will work through several model operational scenarios, covering both planned and unplanned maintenance tasks, backups and recovery processes, responding to database growth requirements, and more!
